The pay off line in Father John Misty’s new track flips ‘Holy Hell’ on its head

Apathy is not where it's at

You’ve noticed how miserable everyone’s been recently, right? Over night Father John Misty posted a new track called ‘Holy Hell’ that at first appears to pile on the despondency that 2016 has beaten us all into. As with all of FJM’s songs though, things aren’t quite what they seem, and by the end of this sparse, slow song the singer’s message is clear – we don’t have to let the misery of recent political events kill us all.
